that must be covered by any health plan offering a plan in the aca exchange. i understand this has far reaching consequences on premiums. benefits must be provided. according to the notice in the federal register, the rule was approved by administrator on august 1, 2012. that is three months before. yet the role did not receive approval from secretary sebillius until two weeks ago. what did it take two month for the administration staff to review -- and yet the public will have only four weeks to review during the period of public comment on the ruling issued on november 26? i would note this is a time of year when people's focus is generally on things other than long awaited rules. >> we put a bulletin on the essential health benefits quite some time ago and got comments on the bulletin. the public had an opportunity to provide public comment on essential health benefits before the proposed rule was put out. there were some changes from what had been in the bulletin, but by and large what is in the bulletin is what is a in the proposed rule. i think there has been ample opportunity fo

is the first to look at the effects of increasing medicare eligibility age in the post aca era. and that's important because it to scare some extent alleviates the concern that tricia mentioned that people who lost their eligibility for medicare would lose access to health insurance entirely. under the law they would have access to new sources of coverage. so our study also goes beyond some of the other analysis to look at the effect of raising the age of eligibility not just on federal spending and medicare spinedding but also on state spending, on out of pocket costs for the 65 and 66-year-olds who shift out of medicare, on employer cost, on cost for part b. premium for remain. on exchange premium for younger enroll lee as well as the totalling health spending effect of the changes across the different payers. we estimated that about 5 million 65 and 66-year-old would be affected. we assumed that all would have coverage from another source if not from medicare the supreme court decision to make the medicaid expansion optional calls this an assumption in to question to some degree. in t

. the attention now needs to be on medicare inside the aca. there were large structural reforms in the way healthcare was playing out. in fact, last year, we had a slower rate of growth and health care spending that we have had in quite a time. whether president has proposed is part of the current negotiations is another $300 billion cut in medicare. stuart: that is a cut. you do understand, that what we really -- >> stuart, that just is not true. we have not seen them play out. certainly, we will have to be coming back every year. usually, through a committee process where people vote at the end of the day. the republicans decided to take another course around the debt ceiling. i do not agree with you. i think to say otherwise is unfair to the president. stuart: i will have the last word. he is a hypocrite. let's not get into it now. you study up on that one, young simon. thank you very much. several states want longer school days. surprise, surprise, the unions are against it. that is next. ♪ only gaviscon® forms a protective barrier that helps block stomach acid from splashing up- re

of 2010, the congressional budget office was projecting out some savings because of the a.c.a. but they were figuring about 4% per capita growth, again as you pointed out this chart now shows we're down to 2%. so they've been revising their estimates over the last two years and the net savings, the recalculation just in the last two years has been hundreds of billions of dollars of lower expenditure than they had first thought was going to be the case. when you compare that magnitude of savings with, for example, raising the eligibility age to 67, i mean, they're dwarfed. it is really just a small portion of what efficiencies in the system are capable of producing. and the fact of the matter is that raising the eligibility age, i mean, there's no free lunch. the fact is that even though these are people that willing challenged in the private insurance market, 65 and 66 are still the healthiest population within the medicare pool. so the ones who remain in medicare, their part b premiums are going to go up and that's not just me saying it, it's the keiser family foundation who
